Skin Care Tip:

Retin A for Wrinkles

Retin-A was originally developed as an acne medication to unclog pores, but now it has been proven to work against wrinkles! Aside from plastic surgery, a great way to reduce wrinkles is Tretinoin. Tretinoin is a vitamin A compound better known as Retin-A which works by stimulating cell turnover to slow down the aging process. Retin-A also stimulates collagen production and blood flow into the dermis which helps skin to appear more youthful and prevents many wrinkles from occurring. It will also help erase the crow's feet and fine lines left by aging and the sun. .

Retin-A cream comes in a variety of strengths, from 0.025% to 0.1 %. It is available by prescription only, so your dermatologist or plastic surgeon can help determine which concentration is best for you. Generally, people beginning Retin-A treatment apply the lowest-dosage cream nightly or every other night until their Physician instructs them otherwise. Since Retin-A removes the dead top layer of skin a common side effect is dry, sun-sensitive skin that can be irritated and scaly. Though both of these side effects typically diminish with time, you will still need a moisturizer to help hydrate the skin. Once you start using Retin-A, you should avoid the sun as much as possible and always wear an SPF of at least 15. Besides why would you want to throw away all your hard work and get more wrinkles!

Anti-Aging Tip:

Drinking Lots of Water Slows The Aging Process What do we need more then food?

Water is a necessary and fundamental part of our lives. In fact, the water you drink literally becomes you. There is so much more you could say on this topic but letís leave it at this. Pure water contains no calories, is fat free, cholesterol-free, low in sodium, and non- acidic. It plays a major role in weight loss and weight management. Many regard water as the most significant factor in losing fat. Because it contains no calories you can consume as much as you want without weight gain. Water serves as an appetite suppressant and helps the body metabolize stored fat. Water also helps to reduce water retention by stimulating your kidneys. Water retention is usually a sign that you are not drinking sufficient water thus causing your body to retain water to compensate for this shortage. Every biochemical action that takes place in your body takes place in water. Because of this it is critically important to look at the source of your water intake because what it contains will have a direct effect on your health and aging.

Plastic Surgery Tip:


Liposuction is particularly well-suited for women and men who are of relatively normal weight but have isolated pockets of fat that cause certain areas of their body to appear disproportionate. These localized fat deposits may sometimes be an inherited trait and typically do not respond to dieting or exercise. Liposuction is often the only way to eliminate them.

While it is possible to undergo liposuction at almost any age, you will obtain the best results if your skin still has enough elasticity to achieve a smooth contour following fat removal. When skin is inelastic, as in some older patients, it may not re-drape well and a skin tightening procedure may b To see before and after patient pictures, please click here.
